If I'm convicted of a DUI, does it stay on my record forever, or does it come off my record after some amount of time?
One of many of the harsh consequences of a DUI convicition is - a DUI conviction permanently remains a DUI conviction. It is critical to consult with an attorney experienced in DUI to view options regarding a DUI charge.
I would be happy to discuss with you those options, feel free to view my website for contact information.
Unfortunately, Washington state law does not allow for a DUI to be vacated, or expunged, from your record. RCW 9.96.060 provides, in pertinent part, that: An [person] may not have the record of conviction for a misdemeanor or gross misdemeanor offense vacated if...the offense was a violation of RCW 46.61.502 (driving while under the influence), or 46.61.504 (actual physical control while under the influence)
